Pre-PMA 2008: The PIXMA ip2600 replaces both the ip1800 and ip2500 at the entry-level end of Canon's printer range and offers 4-ink A4 printing at 4800 x 1200 dpi with class-leading 2pl (picolitre) droplet size for finer detail and color gradation. ChromaLife100 dye-based ink formulation promises longer life prints too, with Canon claiming up to 100 years of fade-free enjoyment if the prints are stored in a suitable album. The ip2600 will be available from February for around $49.99.
